Before the Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday in May, there is Keeneland in April.

Every spring, Lexington’s historic track fills with life. Some of it, you see. Most, you don’t.

The crowds that pack into Keeneland for spring racing feel the buzz at the rail and the betting windows, see the picture of the paddock, experience the rush of each race. There’s much more unseen to see here.

For 24 hours, Herald-Leader visual journalists Alex Slitz and Caitlyn Stroh looked inside that part of Keeneland.
